A desk with compact dimensions that can be conveniently folded so that it takes up very little space. When you open it, you see a screen with a keyboard. The computer is hidden in the lower part. There is also more storage space in the lower part. It is accessible with doors on both sides. The cabinet includes LED lighting that can be turned on and off with a switch. The valve is automatically muted when opened.

DIY: foldable computer desk

The furniture was put together in a few weekends. First, all MDF parts are mounted according to the drawing. With long chipboard screws, most parts are put together when the screws are out of sight. Other parts including the betonplex with wooden dowels and wood glue attached to the MDF connected. As a result, no construction holes are visible on the outside and that makes the furniture look sleek. The lower doors are mounted with pot hinges. The flap is secured with flap hinges and guides with damping. The MDF is painted white with a paint roller. The LED lighting was purchased from Ikea.

Custom made computer desk

When folded, the furniture is 125.0 cm high, 80.0 cm wide and 20.0 cm deep. When the desk is unfolded, the depth increases and becomes a total of 70.0 cm.
